A New Jersey man who was wanted for murdering his adult daughter and injuring his wife with a baseball bat was found dead Tuesday, authorities said.

Gregory Kelemen, 57, from Voorhees was sought for allegedly beating to death his 22-year-old daughter, Katherine "Katie" Kelemen, and assaulting his wife, Sheri Kelemen, in a vicious attack at their house Monday morning.

Gregory's body with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound was discovered from a wooded area in Preston Avenue, around a mile from the family’s home in Voorhees, the prosecutor's office said, as reported by Courier Post.

Sheri told cops that she woke up Monday morning to find her husband beating her with a baseball bat while screaming: “I can’t take it anymore!” She said she eventually managed to crawl away from him and went to her daughter's bedroom where she found Katherine unresponsive and covered in blood.

Sheri then called 911 and the emergency officers arrived at the scene.

Katherine was rushed to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead from blunt force trauma. Sheri was hospitalized with severe injuries to her head and hands and remains in stable condition.

According to the report, Gregory fled the house in his SUV shortly before the emergency officers arrived. Sheri told the investigators that her husband usually kept the bat under their bed and was asleep when she went to bed at around 2 a.m.

The investigators found that after fleeing the house, Gregory contacted his employer to inform them that he will be late to work due to a family emergency. He then did not report to the office.

Gregory was charged with murder, attempted murder and unlawful possession of a weapon. He was sought by the U.S. Marshals Service and local authorities when his body was discovered from the woods. The prosecutors said they believe Gregory died by suicide.

The family's neighbors were shocked to hear about the brutal killing, NBC Philadelphia reported. "Such a nice, nice family. Always said hi. Always went on walks together. Just to think something like this could happen is mind-blowing and sick,” a neighbor told the outlet.
